2016 Kirwan, Margaux

SKU #1405835 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This big, rich wine offers dense tannins as well as sumptuous black fruits. Fruit and acidity come together to create a wine with both richness and juicy black-plum flavors. Drink this powerful wine from 2025. *Editors’ Choice* (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is not generous but is hugely concentrated and opens with a Margaux floral flourish. Damson and cassis are joined by a shot of freshness on the well constructed palate. The tannins are a little overly tight on the finish - you can feel the juice slightly strangled by them - but it's clearly a wine that's built to last. 4% Petit Verdot rounds out the blend. (JA) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark There’s fragrant charm here with purple flowers and a swathe of ripe, juicy dark berries. This has a firmish overall feel with sturdy tannins, driving ripe and fresh, red and dark berries long. The oak is very nicely played. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Kirwan, the second vintage made in the new cuverie, has a tightly knit bouquet of blackberry, pencil lead, crushed stone and pressed iris. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine bead of acidity, and a little more succulent than it showed in barrel, leading to a persistent finish. This is a fine Kirwan, though with their new winery, I’m convinced that more can be achieved from their terroir. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Kirwan is scented of red plums, cassis, redcurrants, earth and cigar box. The palate is medium-bodied, lean, chewy and lively with an earthy finish. Drink 2019-2031. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Bright damson plum, bitter cherry and rose petal notes lead the way in this fresh and focused version, with light rooibos tea and mineral accents underlining the silky, elegant finish. Sneaky long too. Best from 2021 through 2031. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Deep crimson with purple rim. Ripe dark fruit and a touch smoky. Firm tannins but there’s so much lovely fruit here it pours over the structure like a fountain. Pure cassis and just fresh enough. 17/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (10/2018)
